Delete multiple projects

    Opening locally stored files in TC for Windows, can result in a very large project library.

    It would be very convenient to have a tick-box to delete multiple (local) projects all at once.

    It this something that can be developed?

    Hello Yves,

    Thank you for the feedback. May I ask further details behind your improvement request? For example, it would be interesting to know what is the main use case why you need so many local-only projects? Do you intend to make them available online at some point? 

    With regards,

    Hi Jari,

    In my Company the less tech-savy people tend to open Ifc and Dwg files by doubleclicking and thus end up with loads of local projects. For that the mass delete would be quite nice.

    Hi Tobias,

    I see, thanks for the insight. You're right, if the .IFC and .DWG file types are associated with Trimble Connect for Windows, then double clicking the model file in Windows Explorer opens TC Windows and automatically creates an offline project for the model. 

    One possible workaround is to instruct users to create one project for that purpose and add the files they want to view via the Add File button (or by drag & drop): 

    I have recorded the improvement request into the application backlog. However, we don't yet have guidance when it might become available.
